Ok - what is this?

If these were authentic Blue Note and Verve pressings it would seem waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay too good to be true.

Grey label euro trash? Surely?

Who knows. I’m gonna find out around Xmas. Worst case they can go on eBay for $15 each and I’ll use the profit to buy some real records ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ 

 

for $7 each, what have you got to lose?

I picked these up a month or so ago when it was 10 records for $78 shipped (seems the be the same value as this one) and it's the real deal.

 

All excess stock from the Jazz 33 1/3 collectors series. Properly licensed by DeAgostini and genuinely excellent quality pressings. I would recommend

 

I first read about it here: https://forums.stevehoffman.tv/threads/zavvi-best-of-jazz-starter-kit-all-time-classics-albums-set-of-10-mystery-vinyl-lp.990763/page-3

Please report back.

If they're legit - that's deal of the year!


arrived today. Haven’t listened to any yet but they turned up at least and that’s a start :)

Just checked and current special is $68 shipped for 6 records which still isn’t terrible, now that you know they’ll at least show up. 
 

even if they’re not great pressings they could be good gifts for that niece or nephew who just got their first turntable.

here’s my haul. The only ones I’m really familiar with are somethin else, which I like and Getz/Gilberto, which I hate (effin bossa). I played the dexter Gordon and it sounded pretty good on my modest deck.

Very nice! Similar to mine by the looks of it.

 

@Special K has a spare of Ella and Louis too, I'll be hanging on to mine though sorry!

What pressing did they turn out to be? DOL? 

 

All from this series: https://www.discogs.com/label/956425-Jazz-At-3313-rpm

 

Quality is genuinely excellent and it looks like you can pick them up cheap enough now that people have been picking up copies through sales like these .

Wait till we have another 36 degree day, pour yourself a cocktail, and give the Getz/Gilberto another try.

Some music works better in the context it was created for.

I’ve had a digital copy for a while that I’ve listened to a few times but it’s never stuck. I grew up in the 80s so bossa just has a terrible association with d-bags that I can’t shake :D 

 

Also, it’s the only shrink-wrapped one so I’ll keep it that way until I get around to selling it

Sorry all. Potentially found a home for them already.
